Winning Chess Combinations (Hans Bouwmeester)

Winning Chess Combinations (Hans Bouwmeester)
PDF - English - 136 Pages - PDF - 4.40 MB

Download

Combinations are the central element in chess; they make the game so magical and captivating. The beautiful point of sacrificing a queen, the strongest piece, in order to checkmate with a lowly pawn brings a smile of joy to all chess lovers. Virtually all chess games possess a combination, either one hidden in the shadows of analysis carefully avoided or one that provides a decisive blow.Winning Chess Combinations is a unique work that doesn't merely repeat the wonderfully rich and vast numbers of combinations, asking readers to solve a particular diagrammed position; it is a work that is far more realistic. A combination involves a sacrifice upsetting the balance of forces, but will it work or tragically boomerang? The reader is invited to solve this critical question by identifying the advantages that a specific position holds which might make the combination successful.Winning Chess Combinations is the seventh in Yasser Seirawan's highly acclaimed Winning Chess series - Probably the best-selling series of chess books ever published.

Mis Geniales Predecesores I, II, III (Garry Kasparov)

Vol.1 - De Steinitz a Alekhine (Garry Kasparov)
PDF - Spanish - 468 Pages - 29 MB

Download

"Este es, probablemente, el libro de ajedrez que con más placer he leído nunca", ha escrito el británico Nigel Short, derrotado por Gary Kasparov en la final del Campeonato del mundo de 1993 en su crítica para el Sunday Telegraph. En esta edición española, que corrige los errores de las anteriores publicaciones, rusa e inglesa, el lector quedará impresionado por la sabia mezcla que logra Kasparov entre su condición de número uno indiscutible desde 1985 y su pasión por la historia. En su profundo análisis de los campeones del mundo -y de los jugadores que dejaron honda huella sin lograr el trono-, el autor sitúa a cada uno en su época y disecciona los rasgos psicológicos que influyeron en sus partidas. Y al glosar éstas, Kasparov fusiona todos los análisis que el aficionado puede desear: los efectuados en su día por los protagonistas y sus contemporáneos, los posteriores de otros grandes maestros, los de las computadoras más potentes de nuestros días y los del propio Kasparov, quien pone un especial cuidado en distinguir las fuentes para un mayor disfrute del lector. El pasado, el presente y el previsible futuro del ajedrez se funden en este primer volumen de esta magna obra que constará de cinco tomos. Dado que la calidad de las partidas crece a medida que se acercan a nuestros días -todos los campeones aprendieron de sus predecesores- cabe preguntarse: ¿qué dirá Short cuando lea las siguientes entregas?


Vol.2 - De Euwe a Tal (Garry Kasparov)
PDF - Spanish - 456 Pages - 22 MB

Download

Gari Kaspárov era todavía un niño cuando Mijaíl Botvínik (1911-1995), el patriarca del ajedrez soviético, vio en él a un futuro campeón y a un revolucionario, y lo acogió como alumno favorito en su escuela especial para grandes talentos. Por muy clarividente que fuera Botvínnik, no podía imaginar que aquel inquieto mozo azerbaiyano diseccionaría 30 años después las partidas de todos los campeones del mundo con una profundidad ejemplar e inaudita.
En este segundo tomo, Kaspárov analiza el estilo científico que definió a su querido profesor, la armonía casi poética de Vasili Smyslov, la mente volcánica en permanente erupción de Mijaíl Tal y la coherencia y disciplina mental del único campeón no nacido en la URSS (o Rusia) de quienes reinaron entre 1927 y 1972, el holandés Max Euwe.

La obra estaría incompleta si no se trataran a otros grandes jugadores de la época que se quedaron a las puertas de la corona: Paul Keres, David Bronstein y Efim Géller fueron tres monstruos del juego que no alcanzaron el trono por mala suerte o por no haber nacido unos años antes o después, y es justo que figuren en esta galería de reyes analizados con gran detenimiento.
Sostiene Kaspárov que cada campeón tiende a fosilizarse, a dormirse un poco en sus laureles tras el periodo de máxima creatividad. Pero en su libro nos muestra todo lo bueno que ha visto en sus genios predecesores.


Vol.3 - De Petrosian a Spassky (Garry Kasparov)
PDF - Spanish - 309 Pages - 14 MB

Download

Galopaban los convulsos años sesenta cuando un sordo genial, como Beethoven, nos recordó que la belleza del ajedrez no sólo se encuentra en los sacrificios románticos. Muchas partidas de Tigran Petrosian impresionan porque un hilo melódico une los movimientos hasta el desenlace, casi siempre elegante. Aunque el armenio solía escuchar a Chaikovski antes de sus duelos, otro campeón del mundo, Mijail Tal, comparó su arte con el de Liszt, tal vez por la gran complejidad que les une: las sonatas para piano del húngaro son tan difíciles de interpretar como las sutiles maniobras de Petrosian. Amagos por la izquierda para lanzarse por la derecha, entregas de material a largo plazo y profilaxis previas incluso al pensamiento del rival definen a un genio, injustamente etiquetado por sus empates sin lucha. Algo similar ocurre con su sucesor, Boris Spasski, a quien podemos comparar con Mozart por el inmenso talento de ambos, si bien el austriaco era hiperactivo y el exsoviético, hoy francés, un as de la vagancia. Sin embargo, y a pesar de que casi siempre hablamos de él como un actor secundario de la gran película de Bobby Fischer, Spasski es uno de los grandes de la historia, el décimo campeón del mundo, con todo el mérito. Su obra y la de Petrosian pueden escucharse en este libro bajo la maravillosa batuta de Gary Kasparov, quien además hace justicia con cuatro que no fueron campeones pero sí virtuosos: Gligoric, Polugaievski, Portisch y Stein, los teloneros de lujo de un concierto magistral.

PDF - English - 408 Pages - 8.77 MB

Nothing more clearly separates chess master from chess wannabe than winning endgame play. Accurate opening play can be satisfying, and combinations in the middlegame are exciting. But for most chess players, victory is the real finish line. And the endgame is the last lap of the race. Depending on whether or not you command the necessary endgame knowledge, you can spoil hours of planning, or you can enjoy the victory you've spent the whole game earning. You can even pull yourself out of the steely jaws of a "certain" defeat! The best news is that you don't need to memorize thousands of positions, but only a few carefully selected ones. Combine these with the clear and concise explanations in Just the Facts! and you have the "magic key to chess mastery." Just the Facts! boils down all essential endgame knowledge into one volume you can use to win games for the rest of your life. (Unlike opening variations, endgame knowledge is immutable.) The principles of the endgame are very different from those in the opening and middlegame some rules even reverse themselves! Just the Facts! gives you the ideas and the ability to recognize when to apply them. Just the Facts! is the seventh and final volume of the best-selling Comprehensive Chess Course, the series that brings English readers the once strictly guarded and time-tested Soviet training methods, the key to the 50-year Russian dominance of the chess world. The Comprehensive Chess Course can take you from beginner to master.

Match por el título mundial, Capablanca - Alekhine, Bs.As 1927

Match por el título mundial, Capablanca - Alekhine
PDF - Spanish - 174 Pages - 116.0 MB

Download

Antes del match por el título mundial en 1927 el resultado entre ambos jugadores era claramente favorable a Capablanca por +4-0=7. La última victoria de Capablanca sobre Alekhine había sido unos pocos meses antes en el Torneo de Nueva York. En ese torneo sextangular Capablanca había tenido una actuación brillante y lo había ganado con 2,5 puntos de ventaja sobre Alekhine que termino segundo. Al terminar segundo Alekhine obtuvo el derecho a desafiar al campeón, ya que esta era una condición que Capablanca había impuesto para otorgarle esa posibilidad.

El Torneo comenzó con una victoria espectacular de Alekhine que con negras logra vencer al campeón en la primer partida después de una apertura bastante dudosa de Capablanca. Esto haya hecho quizá que Capablanca se esmerase un poco más y luego de tablas en la segunda partida consigue empatar el match al ganar la tercera con blancas.

Capablanca vuelve a ganar con blancas en la séptima partida y se pone adelante en el marcador. A esta altura todos pensaban que el match estaba decidido en favor del campeón vigente, a pesar de que aún tenía que obtener cuatro victorias más para ganarlo.

Luego siguen tres empates y allí la nueva sorpresa: Alekhine gana las partidas 11 y 12 y retoma el liderazgo. A partir de allí hay un larga lucha con Alekhine a la ofensiva y Capablanca a la defensiva. Después de nuevas victorias para ambos el resultado es de 4-3 a favor de Alekhine. Se suceden varios empates hasta que en la partida 32 Alekhine vuelve a vencer para ponerse 5-3 y termina definiendo el match a su favor al ganar la partida 34.

La victoria de Alekhine se basó en una excelente preparación teórica que le permitió sorprender a Capablanca con variantes muy bien estudiadas. Las dificultades presentadas en las aperturas fueron a veces muy difíciles de resolver sobre el tablero, aún para un genio como José Raúl Capablanca. Quizá esa fácil victoria de Capablanca en el torneo de Nueva York lo haya condicionado anímicamente y se haya sentido muy superior a Alekhine. Lo cierto es que no dedicó la necesaria atención a su preparación antes del match.

El triunfo le dio una gran popularidad al nuevo campeón, algo que desgraciadamente no supo cuidar y duró poco. La razón de esta súbita pérdida de popularidad de Alekhine es que el en libro sobre el Torneo de Nueva York, que se le había encargado redactar, critica duramente el estilo de juego de Capablanca. Críticas que casi la totalidad del mundo ajedrecístico consideraba totalmente ijustificadas. A partir de allí se establece una profunda enemistad entre ellos. Algo que indudablemente contribuyó para que no se lleve a cabo un match de desquite para el campeón destronado, como era de costumbre.

Pandolfini "Pandolfini's Endgame Course" (ENG, 1988)

Pandolfini's Chess Endgame Course Book Existing books on chess endings were of two unsatisfactory types. Either they were too analytic and technical or too vague and general. There was a compelling need to combine the best features of both types into a single instructional chess endgame book format.

So on my own I started to collect insightful endgame positions, explaining in both words and chess variations the concepts I judged to be most helpful to my students. My goal was to create an inventory of positions that would benefit any chessplayer who studied them.

Korn "The Brilliant Touch in Chess" (ENG, 1966)

Korn The Brilliant Touch in Chess The popularity of books on combinations among chess players has a deeper reason than mere love of the brilliant, the sensational, the unexpected. No doubt this love is an integral part of their attraction, but deeper down there is the realization that the combination is an essential part of the game.

When both sides have played tenaciously and well, there comes a time when the players are, as it were, on the verge of deadlock, with a draw as the inevitable result.

Than the supreme effort, the combination, comes to the rescue, not necessarily to win a piece or to bring about mate, but, possibly, merely to effort a breach or to gain the essential tempo which will enable the player to turn the scales in his favour.

Keres, Kotov "The Art of the Middle Game" (ENG, 1964)

Keres, Kotov The Art of the Middle Game Many chess-players know a large variety of openings and understand well the pattern of the endgames - but what happens in the middle? The difficulty of understanding the principles of middlegame play is perhaps best illustrated by the dearth of good chess books on the middle game. They can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

Yet the middle game is a real challenge to the player. Here in the full orchestration of the chess game the player has the chance to use all his pieces to carry out his ideas. All players will be grateful to the grandmasters, Keres and Kotov, for their masterly analysis of attack and defense in the middlegame, and to Mr Golombek for his translation and fully authoritative introduction.

Kasparov - Karpov 1990 match The fifth World Chess Championship match between Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov (New York - Lyon, 1990) was one of the most complicated in the chess history.

Yudovich "Garry Kasparov" (ENG, 1988)

free Garry Kasparov ebook One should remember that the creative element in chess takes shape in hard-fought battles, in which, apart from talent and knowledge, a player must have the energy and will to win.

There is ample evidence of this in the present book, dealing with the chess career and creative development of the 13th World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov and his contribution to modern chess. The book is interesting because it shows how the chess talent of this brilliant chess player has evolved; how, by strenuous work in chess, he succeeded in overcoming the shortcomings of his play, in improving chess style and in deepening his understanding of the chess strategy and chess tactics.

M. Euwe "Judgment And Planning In Chess" (ENG, 1953)

Euwe Judgment And Planning In Chess During the Plymouth Congress in August 1948 I met Mr. J du Mont, then editor of the British Chess Magazine, who suggested that I should write a book on the lines of the present volume.

His idea was to give practical player some guidance as to how to proceed in a game from the point where the books on opening theory leave off. The result is the present volume...
